May 6, 2010 The Times-Journal Page 3 Arlington Particulars by Kay West Darn weathermen! They have been batting much better than .500 with their forecast. This week began with torrential rain and up to 65 mph winds that were downright cold just as predicted. But, we must count our blessings as we do not experience tornadoes or major flooding. Who said grin and bear it? Very sad news to hear that two cowboys were injured during the Arlington Jackpot Rodeo. We send our prayers and best wishes for their complete recovery. The final trivia question from the Arlington Saddle Club was not answered correctly. When the paper was issued last week the query was "How many years has the A JR really been held?" with emphasis on the past tense 'had.' At that time only 62 rodeos had been held, this year being the 63rd. Don't shoot the messenger about this tricky question. Among entrants that answered 63 were Ron Bryant of Pendleton and Delene Durfey of Condon who remembers how old she is by the rodeo's anniversary! Thanks for the ASC questions and answers from rodeo enthusiasts. You can find a "Basket of Gold" at the Garden Club Plant Sale, Saturday, May 8th, 10:00 a.m.-lO;O0 p.m., at the Memorial Hall. Pd.
